Although it’s been around for a while, it took a pandemic to propel telehealth to the forefront of the healthcare landscape. And for better or worse, it seems to be here to stay. Based on a survey by Sage Growth Partner (SGP) and Black Book Market Research, 25% of consumer respondents had used telehealth prior to the current COVID-19 pandemic. Fifty-nine percent reported they are more likely to use telehealth services now than previously, and 33% would leave their current physician for a provider who offered telehealth access.
In this episode, the ITDL team is joined by Courtney Chambers, MD, FACS, a highly successful general surgeon who has recently made the transition from surgical suite to telehealth screen. We discuss what it’s like for physicians to make career transitions and more specifically what the future of telehealth may bring to the future of healthcare.
It’s an interesting discussion so grab a cup of coffee and join the conversation inside the doctor’s lounge!
